For two decades, Dr. Martin Goldstein one of Americas's most successful, renowned holistic veterinarians-has healed and helped his animal patients with the same natural therapies that benefit humans. The results have been so astounding that today critically sick pets are brought to him form across the country for a new chance at life and health. In this compelling, very accessible book, Dr. Goldstein explains exactly what holistic medicine is and how it works. By treating the root of a health problem instead of its symptoms, you too can help your animal to regain and maintain its own health, as nature intended. Dr. Goldstein also shares many remarkable true stories of supposedly terminally ill animals who have recovered to full wellness. Inside you'll discover:
  • Why our animals get sick, even when you strive to give them the best of care
  • An exhaustive A to Z guide of pet ailments - and the best course of action
  • Why vaccines can do more harm than good

  • How acupuncture, homeopathy, chiropractic, and other alternative options work-safely and painlessly-to restore true health
  • Specific guidance for the use of herbs, supplements, and natural remedies
  • The good news (and the bad) about cancer in animals-including extraordinary new treatments and potential cures
  • Coping with the inevitable death of your pet - both physically and psychologically
Plus-a comprehensive resource guide for holistic pet care including" veterinarians, products manufacturers, books, newsletters, magazines, associations, and more!

Dr. Martin Goldstein earned his B.S. and D.V.M. form Cornell University. He was certified in veterinary acupuncture by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society in 1977, and in iridology in 1981. He continues to receive advanced education credits yearly by attending the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Society's annual conferences, where he also frequently lectures. Dr. Goldstein has written numerous articles about holistic veterinary medicine and alternative therapies for many magazines, journals, and related publications. He teaches the seminar "Fundamentals of Health and Disease for an Alternative Point of View" to both veterinarians and members of the general public. The seminar, six hours long and illustrated by four hundred slides, is the culmination of over two decades of his research and work in the field of alternative veterinary medicine. He has many happy and health dogs and cats, all of which are living proof of the philosophy contained in this book.

Here are the books that I think every dog owner that is interested in the health and a natural diet for their dogs should own. These 5 books will forever change the way that you look at the health and care of your dogs.

Dear Mr. Frawley:

I just wanted to thank you once again for having such an informative website. I visit your site almost on a daily basis. I love to read your questions and answer section, along with your new products that you keep adding. We switched over to Innova about 6-8 months ago. We first read about it on your site. I just read a book called "The Nature of Animal Healing" by Martin Goldstein D.V.M. I am so happy that we switched over to Innova after reading this book. To think that my dogs and cats were eating worm-infected carcasses, road kill and euphemized pets etc., is enough to make anyone absolutely sick and very angry. What really upset me was when I remembered my son, when he was young, how he crawled around the floor sometimes getting into the pet food dish and putting this in his mouth. Back then I didn't worry about it too much, because it was supposed to be this healthy food loaded with vitamins and nutrients. UGH!! The chapter on vaccines also made me angry. How can these manufacturers keep pushing these vaccines knowing they cause severe illnesses and even cancer? I called my vet to confirm the dosage of these vaccines. He complied with what the book said. A small dog, say 10pds receives a 1cc dose, as does a 150lb. dog! I always thought these vaccines were adjusted according to weight. I was wrong, but then how was I supposed to know that? What's really hard about all this, is we have been what I call "Brainwashed" into thinking our dogs need these vaccines to survive and live a healthy life. It is going to be hard for people to turn them down. I think people will always be thinking, "Did I do the right thing? Should I have gotten my pet that shot"? I will be taking blood samples and having a titer ran on them to see if they still are covered before I give any of my pets any vaccines again, with the exception of rabies, which by law we have to give. Then if necessary, I will tell my vet to adjust it according to weight and if they won't, I will find another vet who will. I was just wondering what people do in your circumstance breeding and running kennels? Do you still vaccinate as much as you used to? In my opinion the FDA needs to step in fast and start doing something about this situation. This has gone on way too long. Thanks again, for your information on Innova. Believe it or not, it lead me in the direction on nutrition, which brought this book into my life.


Ed's Response:


I agree with you that the Goldstein book is one of the best that we sell. It also opened my eyes to a lot of issues with my dogs. To answer your questions:

1- I no longer vaccinate my dogs after they have had their original puppy shot (other than Rabies – which I am not sure they need after the first vaccination)
2- I only feed my dogs meat and veggies in my kennel – I do not feed any commercial dogs food . My dogs are healthier than they have ever been.

This book is kind of like a textbook with all the academic terminology. I use it as reference. It is easy to read however it has a lot of BS in it. The most revealing of his chapters was the one where he exposes the rendering process.

The truckers that haul for those rendering plants can tell you a lot stories. I just found out that my neighbor hauls for such a plant. He said most of the stuff he hauls is for the zoos. On one of his trips he picked up a "rhino". He watched them cut it up with a chainsaw and said the hide was as thick as the boards they use for siding in buildings houses. His wife won't let him in after one of those trips unless he stops at a truck stop to shower and change clothes and leave the ones he was wearing. He has watched the process and said the fat that comes to the top goes into cosmetics (and he knows the main buyers). The bones he said go to the bottom of the vat that goes mainly to the fertilizers plants and the rest is animal food: Monkey, tigers, birds, road kill, and whatever; hides collars and whatever else they have inside or outside of them.

Mt animals get the Schultze diet now. And I intend to look into the natural food treatment for disease the Goldstein talks about.

Hello Ed,

I have purchased the following books from you and now I'm letting you know which books I have purchased.

  • Animal Healing--Very Good Book!
  • Advanced Schutzhund--Also a Good Book!
  • What Vets Don't Tell You
  • About Vaccines--Very Good Book!
  • Natural Health--Very Good Book!
Without all the books on a dogs health, I don't think I would have realized the importance! The pet stores and vets try and push their products and they don't care about your animal... thanks for all the info Ed!
